Acoustic trips through the magnetic spheres of motherboards

Plunge into the invisible relationships of hard and soft computer matter by acoustic means. A collection of laptops are examined via electromagnetic induction pickups. Booting up an operating system starts the travel into this space emerging between hard- and software. Operating systems, tools and custom programs are utilized to bring the characteristics of each computer into the limelight.

Machine noises mediate for the public. They reveal the activity of computer programs in the widest sense and the activity of the computer parts they are running on. Time and space of computer processes run through different levels of reality during âruntimeâ. Software being processed within this coordinate system creates its own temporal and spatial dimensions, which are staged for an audience to provide a sonic experience: that of logic encountering the physical world.

Valentina Vuksic is a computer artist and programmer based in Zürich. Her work is a personal exploration of the possibilities afforded by articulated hard- and software mediation. She approaches computer systems via inductive microphones for magnetic fields, so-called âtelephone adapters." With choreographies for software and computer elements, she utilizes these as actors in software/noise pieces for, and in, computers.

Vuksic considers time and space of computer processor and memory as levels of reality. Software being processed creates own temporal and spatial dimensions, which are staged for a public. She aims for a sensual experience of the analytical sphere becoming concrete, where logic encounters the physical world. The mechanic noises serve as mediators to a public. They reveal in an immediate way the activities taking place between computer processes in the widest sense and the computer electronics they are running on.
